The Flatbush Nostrand-Junction Business Improvement District is holding its first Weekend Walks Streetfest from 2pm to 7pm this Sunday, during which there will be hip hop and zumba classes, arts and crafts, double dutch aerobics, music, children playhouses, and more.
The streetfest will be held on Flatbush Avenue between Farragut and Glenwood roads and is a free event for the community. It is financially supported by the city Department of Transportation and Flatbush Nostrand Junction Business Improvement District.
“We are proud to start the tradition of the Weekend Walk Streetfest here in the junction,” said BID Executive Director Michelle McClymont. “The Weekend Walks program has a tremendous impact on New York neighborhoods, it allows the community to envision the streets in a whole new way; not just as a means to get from place to place, but as an opportunity to create synergy throughout the community.”
Also, note that Flatbush Avenue between Glenwood and Farragut will be closed to vehicles from 12pm to 8pm Sunday because of the festival. Additionally, the B41 will be rerouted from Flatbush Avenue between Farragut Road and Nostrand Avenue from 1pm to 8pm.
